Mancienne muddle

Mancienne muddle

Michael Mancienne has always been destined to make headlines.

And now, almost 15 years after he joined Chelsea, he's starting to fulfill the promise that has seen him so far make the England U21 side, and may see him make a full International appearance without yet setting foot inside the Premiership.

Having finally been given a chance to shine in first team football, young Michael is impressing all who watch him play.

Italian's included.

It has taken Mick McCarthy a long time to temporarily aquire the dreadlocked youngster, and it's clear to see why he perservered for so long.

Wolves have his services until January, hopefully that can be extended until the end of the season, but any hopes of the arrangement becoming more permanent have to be looked at with a clear mind, and not tainted by wishful thinking.

The Missus is becoming an expert in these things, and now frequently shows an uncanny ability to hit the nail on the head with the regularity and precision of a metronome.

'But if Chelsea do decide to sell him, wouldn't other Premiership sides make offers as well? And wouldn't he be quite expensive?'

Point, as they say, well made.

Depending on which headline you believe, Mancienne has a future at Chelsea, wants to extend (note the implication of that word) his stay at Wolves, or wants to move and find himself regular Premiership first team football.

Whilst that last part would not on current form rule out a move to Wolves, following a successful Championship campaign, the matter of his fee, his salary expectation, and desire for club based European glory may well do.

If he can impart any of his natuaral gifts to Richard Stearman and Jason Shackell, then we will have come to a very amicable arrangement in the emergence of a star for the future.

And there is little doubt that is what Michael Mancienne is.

Anything more would be verging on the miraculous.

But then miracles have been known to happen.

No, I think you'll find he is that good DrW! And he's all ours, Riccy Carvalho's heir apparent destined to partner JT for club and country, so you can all get your grubby mitts off him! Good luck for the rest of the season boys, hope to see you at the Bridge again next year!

He certainly is that good IMO. Should we gain promotion he is the sort of player we will need to sign if we intend to stay there. I have mentioned this elsewhere including estimating his value at over £5M. All I received was ludicrous comments valuing him at £2/3M!
